Fear God so that you fear no man

“The spill is a disaster for the president and his political philosophy”, Peggy Noonan argues in The Wall Street Journal. Her overall thesis:

When your most creative thoughts in the middle of a disaster revolve around protecting your position, you are summoning trouble. When you try to dodge ownership of a problem, when you try to hide from responsibility, life will give you ownership and responsibility the hard way.

Dave Doran points out that  this is something for all leaders to think about in whatever context we’re in. Whether the article by Peggy Noonan is true or not about the President, one thing is true of all of us and especially those who have the power of influence spiritually: The fear of man is a snare, but fearing the awesomeness of God is freedom.
